Time to Get Together........Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge and another Color Cue Challenge

Can I just say how much I love, love, love MFT's "A la Mode" line of stamps?"  They are fun, and cute and have just the perfect sayings.  I have 4 sets of them, but I'm working on getting each and every one of them.  They are just perfect for my girlfriends.

Sooooooooooo..........for the challenges:  Mojo Monday #166 Sketch Challenges are always top notch!  They always get me thinking and I just loved this sketch with the "tilted" flare.  It was perfect for this MFT stamp.

 Add in another Color Cue #10 Challenge (there are 7 of them that you can post with until Dec. 7th!!!) with lots of purples and a pop of red.....and well, you have an adorable card for a friend. 

I don't actually know where the purple plaid paper is from as I picked it up at a crop on the "share" table a few months back......but, it worked perfectly for this card.  I also used it to paper-piece the girl's pants.  They weren't that bad to cut out and it really pulled the whole card together.

I wasn't quite sure where the "red" would tie in (no pun for this color challenge, but that ribbon just draws the eye!  I think it just grabs the eye and really finishes the card.  I'm so excited about this color combination!

Not sure if you can see it, but I used Diamond Glaze on the clock face to give it some dimension.  It really perked it up!

I actually had this card made last night, but had to wait until the Diamond Glaze was dry to photograph it.  I think it turned out absolutely darling.  I have 4 of these available in my Etsy shop!!!

I definitely like the red ribbon - - I love cards that have a few basic colors and then something totally different for the pop - - totally makes it.
